5 Best Bean to Cup Coffee Machine 2019
Do you know coffee beans start to lose their aroma, flavour, fragrance and oils once they’re ground up – even inside capsules? The longer the time between grinding and brewing, the more the flavour diminishes. Only bean to cup coffee machine can produce a fresh, barista quality drink. A good bean to cup coffee machine can present the best brewing result of your coffee beans.
What is the best brewing result?
Full intensive aromas - As every barista insists on grinding the coffee beans gently to just the right fineness to obtain the optimum taste and release the most intensive aromas in the cup, the precise aroma grinder in a bean to cup coffee machine can ensure that coffee beans are ground to the ideal fineness for the perfect result.
Rich, finely textured milk foam – The foam frother of a bean to cup coffee machine can turn milk into silky milk foam automatically. An innovative nozzle technology can help create finely textured milk foam with long-lasting consistency or heat the milk to the desired temperature.
Fresh water – As coffee contains 98% water, pure cold water is crucial for a perfect cup of coffee. The intelligent water system with filer cartridge can guarantee the best water quality and protects the machine against calcium deposits for an extended lifetime.
